First time attempt at getting a VPN up and running on my ipFire. I’ve run into an issue and have come up blank so far in my searches to resolve it (looking for “openvpn header contains invalid characters”).
I am using IPFire 2.25 (x86_64) - Core Update 153 and am in the OpenVPN Generate Root/Host Certificates page.
I have filled out the Organization Name and IPFire’s Hostname, Country, and selected 2048 bits.
When I click on “Generate root/host certificates”, the screen sits for between 15 seconds to 45 seconds before jumping to a “500 Internal Server Error” page. Logging in as root and looking at the /var/log/httpd/error_log, it has the following info:
[Wed Feb 24 18:20:37.599030 2021] [http:error] [pid 5572:tid 137622018057792] [client 192.168.44.120:48536] AH02429: Response header name ‘2021-02-24 18’ contains invalid characters, aborting request, referer: https://192.168.44.1:444/
The error log says the header name contains invalid characters…
One similar thread I found mentions some errors like this can be caused by the /tmp directory permissions but mine looks fine as shown below. That thread ended up just having it fix itself which was no help.
drwxrwxrwt 3 root root 4096 Feb 24 18:19 tmp
Any ideas on how to resolve this?
